Community Winter Engagement

Rosscarrock Community Association was successful in our application for the Activate YYC Grant from the Federation of Calgary Communities.

The Grant money is being used to build 4 buddy benches which will be set up on the North Side of our Hall in the green space along with a firepit. We will be hosting Community fireside Chats on Fridays this winter complete with Hot Coco and Marshmallows to roast. Please keep your eye out for more information on the date these Fireside Community Chats will start this winter.

Volunteers Needed

Rosscarrock Community Association depends on Volunteers to help us bring low cost or even free programs and events to our community. Not to mention the fundraising initiatives we have in order to fund the operating costs and the maintenance of the hall. Without you we do not have the capacity to bring more engagement to our community.

The following area need volunteers immediately:

  • Casino At Cowboys on January 1st and 2nd This is an important event for Rosscarrock Community Association as the funds raised from the Casino goes directly to keeping our Hall in operation for everyone to enjoy through events, programs, and rentals.
  • Thursday Morning Volunteers to help with the Social Learn and Play Group. The commitment is 1.5 hours per week on Thursday Mornings 9:30 am -11:00am. You would help supervise Kids under the age of 5. You may help them do a craft or read a story or get down and build blocks which seems to a popular area the kids enjoy.
  • Event Committee needs volunteers to assist Our Events Director in planning upcoming events in 2023. This is a commitment will differ in time. There is more time commitment needed when big events are being planned like Neighbor Fest in June, Halloween Party in October, Christmas Market in November and Christmas Party In December. However, there are fundraising events, The Programs during the week that may also need back up coverage. The other area that will need to be covered is Friday Fireside Chats, Please email Lauretta at with your questions or interest.
